Fortune Brands Reports Sales and EPS for Q4 and Full Year; Provides 2017 Annual Outlook for Continued Growth

Highlights from continuing operations:

DEERFIELD, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (NYSE: FBHS), an industry-leading home and security products company, today announced fourth quarter 2016 results from continuing operations and provided its 2017 annual outlook for sales and earnings per share.

"In the fourth quarter overall sales growth accelerated, led by plumbing, and our teams again delivered strong operating margin growth across all segments," said Chris Klein, chief executive officer, Fortune Brands. "For the full year 2016, our teams executed well against our strategy for profitable growth and we achieved strong results that met our expectations that increased throughout the year. With this consistently solid execution, we are well-positioned for continued strong performance in 2017 as the housing market continues on its elongated recovery."

Fourth Quarter 2016

For the fourth quarter of 2016, sales were $1.3 billion, an increase of 6 percent over the fourth quarter of 2015. Earnings per share were $0.67, compared to $0.54 in the prior-year quarter. EPS before charges/gains were $0.71, compared to $0.56 the same quarter last year. Operating income was $166.4 million, compared to $140.3 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating income before charges/gains was $172.8 million, compared to $147.0 million the same quarter last year, up 18 percent.

"Operating margin before charges/gains for the total company grew by 130 basis points to 13.3 percent, with solid performance across all operating segments and organic operating leverage of 45 percent," said Klein.

For each segment in the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to the prior-year quarter:

Full Year 2016

For the full year 2016, sales were $5.0 billion, an increase of 9 percent over 2015. Earnings per share were $2.61 compared to $1.88 in the prior year, and EPS before charges/gains were $2.75 versus $2.07 last year, an increase of 33 percent.

"In 2016 we continued to execute our strategy of disciplined, profitable growth as we increased earnings per share 33 percent. Our sales grew 9 percent and our operating margin before charges/gains exceeded our plan for the year, rising 140 basis points to 13.2 percent. We also saw early benefits from the recent formation of our Global Plumbing Group, where the strategy is to grow sales faster than the market while maintaining margin. Overall, our teams delivered strong results by remaining focused on growing in the most attractive parts of our markets," said Klein.

"In addition to growing our earnings, we continued to deploy capital in value-creating ways as we bought back $424 million of our shares, completed two plumbing acquisitions, and again increased our quarterly dividend. Our balance sheet remained strong during 2016," said Lee Wyatt, chief financial officer, Fortune Brands. "As of December 31, 2016, cash was $251 million and debt was $1.4 billion, resulting in net debt to EBITDA of 1.5 times and giving us substantial flexibility to continue to create incremental shareholder value. Additionally, free cash flow was $531 million."

Annual Outlook for 2017

The Company's 2017 annual outlook is based on a U.S. home products market growth assumption of 6 to 7 percent and an assumption of 5 to 6 percent growth for our total global market. The Company expects full-year 2017 sales growth in the range of 6 to 8 percent.

The Company expects EPS before charges/gains to be in the range of $2.95 to $3.05, the midpoint of which is 14 percent higher than last year, excluding the positive impact of an accounting change on tax rates.

"Entering 2017 our annual outlook again calls for strong performance based on improved earnings, a continued focus on disciplined, profitable growth, and the financial flexibility we have to drive incremental growth," said Klein. "Despite increased uncertainty heading into this year due to the changing political environment, fundamental demand drivers of the U.S. housing market look healthy. We believe we are well-positioned to continue to leverage our structural competitive advantages and drive profitable growth well into the future."

CFO Transition

Over the last five and a half years Fortune Brands has established a strong company-wide finance team, and developed strong management procedures. With strong processes and leadership in place, chief financial officer Lee Wyatt has elected to retire at the end of 2017 when he turns 65.

Consistent with the Company's succession planning process, Patrick Hallinan will succeed Wyatt when he steps down at year end. Hallinan recently accepted the position of senior vice president of finance at Fortune Brands to begin the transition. For the past three years, he served as chief financial officer of the plumbing segment. He previously served as vice president of finance at Beam Inc. and as vice president of finance at MasterBrand Cabinets for three years. Hallinan began his career as a consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton. Over the last 25 years he has developed deep experience in finance, strategy and general management.

"I am genuinely grateful to Lee for his numerous contributions to the company over the past five and a half years," said Klein. "Lee has built a world-class finance team and processes that will continue to ensure flawless financial execution across the company and we are extremely well-prepared for this thoughtful transition. Pat will bring both strong financial experience and a deep familiarity with our high-performance culture and strategy to the role, having been a key contributor in two of our largest businesses."

* Free cash flow is cash flow from operations calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") less net capital expenditures (capital expenditures less proceeds from the sale of assets including property, plant and equipment, and the proceeds from the exercise of stock options). In 2015, it additionally excludes payments of transaction costs related to the Norcraft acquisition. Free cash flow does not include adjustments for certain non-discretionary cash flows such as mandatory debt repayments. Free cash flow is a measure not derived in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that free cash flow provides investors with helpful supplemental information about the Company's ability to fund internal growth, make acquisitions, repay debt and related interest, pay dividends and repurchase common stock. This measure may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.

RECONCILIATION OF FULL YEAR 2017 EARNINGS GUIDANCE TO GAAP

 
For the full year, on a GAAP basis, the Company is targeting diluted EPS from continuing operations to be in the range of $2.93 to $3.03 per share. The Company is targeting diluted EPS before charges/gains from continuing operations to be in the range of $2.95 to $3.05 per share. Reconciliation of non-GAAP diluted EPS guidance to GAAP diluted EPS guidance cannot be provided without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability and low visibility with respect to gains and losses associated with our defined benefit plans and restructuring and other charges, which are excluded from the diluted EPS before charges/gains.

(1) Corporate expenses as derived in accordance with GAAP include the components of defined benefit plan expense other than service cost including actuarial gains and losses.
 
(2) Restructuring charges are costs incurred to implement significant cost reduction initiatives and include workforce reduction costs.
 

(3) "Other charges" represent charges or gains directly related to restructuring initiatives that cannot be reported as restructuring under GAAP. Such costs may include losses on disposal of inventories, trade receivables allowances from exiting product lines, accelerated depreciation resulting from the closure of facilities, and gains or losses on the sale of previously closed facilities. In addition, it includes estimated acquisition related inventory step-up expense in our Plumbing segment of $3.3 million and $3.8 million for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016.

 
(4) Represents actuarial gains or losses associated with our defined benefit plans. Actuarial gains or losses in a period represent the difference between actual and actuarially assumed experience, principally related to liability discount rates and plan asset returns, as well as other actuarial assumptions including compensation rates, turnover rates, and health care cost trend rates. The Company recognizes actuarial gains or losses immediately in operating income to the extent they cumulatively exceed a "corridor." The corridor is equal to the greater of 10% of the fair value of plan assets or 10% of a plan's projected benefit obligation. Actuarial gains or losses are determined at required remeasurement dates which occur at least annually in the fourth quarter. Remeasurements due to plan amendments and settlements may also occur in interim periods during the year. Our operating income before charges/gains reflects our expected rate of return on pension plan assets which in a given period may materially differ from our actual return on plan assets. Our liability discount rates and plan asset returns are based upon difficult to predict fluctuations in global bond and equity markets that are not directly related to the Company's business. We believe that the exclusion of actuarial gains or losses from operating income before charges/gains provides investors with useful supplemental information regarding the underlying performance of the business from period to period that may be considered in conjunction with our operating income as measured on a GAAP basis. We present this supplemental information because such actuarial gains or losses may create volatility in our operating income that does not necessarily have an immediate corresponding impact on operating cash flow or the actual compensation and benefits provided to our employees. The table below sets forth additional supplemental information on the Company's historical actual and expected rate of return on plan assets, as well as discount rates used to value its defined benefit obligations:
